Stopped by without reservations and our $90 ocean front Sat nite rate included room and dinner for 2 (8oz ribeye or 3 choice mix seafood grill or fried w/ potato & salad). Internet was spotty- but would return for this deal! Also included 6pm Sun checkout . Very nice staff!

Check in was a breeze and the staff was friendly. The champagne bags were also, a great touch to the NYE package especially with the thoughtful decorations on them. The guys in the Shark bar on New Years Eve were great and so were the drinks. Dinner in the restaurant was very fresh seafood, excellent in quality and quantity and... More

We have been staying here for years. The prices have definitely gone way up over the past couple of years. We like the location, rooms are outdated/small but clean, the pool is small but nice (under construction), the tikki bar at the pool is nice for everyone, the restaurant has seafood,steaks,pizza, and breakfast/lunch/dinner (will serve at pool). We like to... More

I live near The Clamdigger Inn but have never paid it much mind. I was given a two night stay by friends of mine. I needed a break so, even though I live about13 miles from the Clamdigger, I accepted their gift. The Clamdigger is not new. I traveled quite a bit earlier in my life so The Clamdigger brought...

You could really not leave once you arrived, if you wanted to, with a full service restaurant on the first floor. But you are in the middle of the island with access to many restaurants and things to do and see. And a very clean beach right outside your window and just a few steps away. The room was clean...

Even when connected to the wifi, I couldn't connect to anything. Carpet in the hallway smells and even though it is sealed, soaking wet. TV is pathetic. Bathrooms are so small I'm surprised they can be called a bathroom. Toilets are so small they are very difficult to use. The view is wonderful. That's the only reason I am going... More

Every year we have friends come to visit and every year we take a few days out to stay here. It's an old hotel that is pretty dated but that's part of its charm. Most of the staff have been here for quite some time -- they are friendly and make you feel at home. Be prepared, however, for some... More

This was a good deal for the money, but be prepared for some serious "island time" service. So, the good: The room was clean and comfortable. We also got a cot as we had 3 adults and 2 kids in the room - it was also surprisingly comfortable. TV, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot - all in working order. And... More

The restaurant is not too bad, but the service is horrible, from being seated and the time you wait for service then for the food to come out. The staff lied to us , costing us several hundred dollars extra. I would NEVER book there again. They do not value their customers, it is like , there are more where... More
